Home teeth whitening is the safest and most comfortable method for whitening teeth, as it is conducted in the comfort of your home but in collaboration with a dentist. This whitening method is carried out using individualized teeth trays custom-made for each patient and typically lasts around seven days.
Dr. Bede’s dental practice emphasizes an individual approach to each patient, tailoring the service to their needs and desires.
Why Choose Home Teeth Whitening – Up to Six Shades Whiter Teeth in the Comfort of Your Home
Unlike in-office teeth whitening, the home method uses a lower concentration of teeth whitening gel, making it suitable for home use. It’s essential to note that the teeth whitening process occurs gradually, without the pain that can accompany in-office teeth whitening.
Home teeth whitening involves the use of custom-made teeth trays, created from an impression of each patient’s teeth. The entire procedure is conducted with continuous collaboration with a dentist, ensuring there is no risk of damage to teeth or gums. Our expert team will answer all your questions about how to whiten your teeth at home and provide essential advice on the whitening procedure and dental care after the treatment.
How Home Teeth Whitening Works
Before starting the teeth whitening process, it is necessary to undergo a dental examination and teeth cleaning to ensure the most effective whitening. The procedure involves taking impressions of your teeth, which are used to create personalized teeth whitening trays. These trays are soft and thin, allowing for a comfortable and easy whitening process.
The teeth whitening agent used is a gel based on carbamide peroxide. This type of gel is specifically produced for teeth whitening in collaboration with a dentist and is entirely safe. Before going to bed, after brushing your teeth, apply the gel to the trays, place the trays on your teeth, and go to sleep. This process should be repeated for about seven nights, following our dentist’s individual recommendations. This way, your teeth will gradually whiten. All you need to do in the morning is rinse your teeth and the trays, so they are ready for the next use.
Before opting for this whitening method, it’s essential to know that existing dental fillings or ceramic crowns on teeth are not subject to whitening. If they are visible in the smile zone, they will need to be replaced after the whitening procedure is completed. Additionally, during the week of whitening, it’s necessary to avoid consuming dark-colored beverages, such as black coffee, black tea, wine, and similar.
Advantages of Home Teeth Whitening
After completing the whitening, based on the color scale, we will determine the achieved teeth shade. This allows us to know the whitening effect and monitor how the achieved shade behaves over time. Teeth whiteness can last for years, and when you decide to refresh it, you can use the existing trays.
You can repeat the procedure several times without fear of any negative consequences for your teeth and gums.
Numerous studies have shown that a person’s confidence is significantly affected by the appearance of their teeth and smile. If you’ve been concerned about damaging your teeth, with the help of home teeth whitening, you can rest assured that you will achieve dazzling white teeth that are not only beautiful but also healthy and enhance the beauty of your smile.
